An Alabama woman was detained on Tuesday after she allegedly threw a computer monitor at a gate agent for American Airlines while trying to catch her connecting flight at Miami International Airport, officials confirmed.
According to a release from the Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) shared with PEOPLE, 25-year-old Camilia McMillie of Birmingham was traveling from Alabama to New York City with a stopover in Miami.
McMillie reportedly became “irate and began to scream” after noticing her two minor children had wandered away without notice to use nearby restrooms while she was with the gate agent to check in to her flight that was rebooked after she missed her previous one.
“She pulled the boarding pass reader off the wooden counter, damaging the equipment and countertop area,” the release from MDPD stated. “As she continued to scream, she then grabbed the computer monitor and threw it at the gate agent, striking her in the shoulder.”
CBS Miami obtained a clip of the incident which was originally shared by the Instagram account Only in Dade, showing McMillie throwing the monitor.

McMillie was charged with felonies of aggravated battery and criminal mischief as well as a misdemeanor of disorderly conduct. She is currently being held in a Miami-Dade County Jail as of Wednesday afternoon with a $4,500 键, according to the jail record. It is unclear if McMillie has retained an attorney who can speak on her behalf.
